BENGALURU UPDATE – An Arrival City Story
BENGALURU UPDATE! An Arrival City Story.
12. February 2016, 18.00h
CLB Berlin, Aufbau Haus, Moritzplatz, 10969 Berlin
Bengaluru – the capital of Karnataka is globally known as the Indian Silicon Valley. Less obvious and less know is the process of transformation set in motion by migration. Within the last years the transformation of the urban fabric was massive and created a new picture of Bengaluru – a city that only a few years ago was everyone’s romantic idea of a garden city and the city of visionary landscape architects and planners like Gustav Krumbiegel and Otto Koenigsberger. Bengaluru still has a large variety of urban elements, which – in their historical dimension – can be regarded as visionary, and is at the same time an agglomeration of rural history within the city. Interestingly Bengaluru in particular is a city that could provide an example of how the story of the Indian city of tomorrow could be retold.
The evening will visually highlight and debate exemplary on Bengaluru »What does an Indian city mean?« and the crux of urban planning in India. The talk will be followed by a dicussion with the architect and urban planner Naresh V Narasimhan (MOD Institute/Venkataramanan Associates).
The evening is curated by Tile von Damm, Anne K. Fenk (MOD Institute) and Rachel Lee (Habitat Unit, TU Berlin) and is part of the series of events „A106. Utopie & Planung“ at CLB Berlin, curated by Sally Below, sbca.
